Petroferm Inc. Cleaning Products announces that BIOACT 105 Precision Cleaner has been approved by Bombardier per BAPS 180-009 as a general (G) manual solvent cleaner. BIOACT 105, a widely approved manual cleaner, is selected for fast dry times and very low environmental and safety impact. For over 10 years, BIOACT 105 has been used as a safe and low use-cost alternative to acetone, isopropyl alcohol (IPA), methyl ether ketone (MEK) and other toxic, low-flash point solvents. It effectively removes adhesive and tape residues, carbonaceous soils, heavy greases, lubricants, paint overspray, silicones and waxes. BIOACT 105 offers excellent compatibility with substrates and materials used in aircraft MRO and OEM cleaning operations. It is available in liquid and pre-saturated wipes. BIOACT 105 is also approved by Bell Helicopter (Bulletin No: 1915), CFM (CP# 2719), GE Aviation (CO4-251), Gulfstream Aerospace (GAS115H), Honeywell Aerospace (C5049), International Aerospace Engines (CoMat 01-506/A) Pratt & Whitney (PMC 8929), Rolls-Royce (CSS255, 1/257S) and United Airlines (SOL3001-17). BIOACT is a registered trademark of Vantage Specialties, Inc.
Petroferm Inc. announces that AXAREL 1000, AXAREL 2000, AXAREL 3000 and AXAREL 4000 Precision Cleaners are approved for maintenance use on Airbus aircraft in accordance to the Consumable Materials List (CML) (ref. MIL-PRF-680). AXAREL 1000-4000 are a series of highly-refined solvent based solutions designed for hand wipe and immersion cleaning. They are selected for their very low odor, good solvency, low volatility and operational flexibility. Safe for use on all aerospace alloys, they are excellent drop-in replacements to acetone, isopropyl alcohol (IPA), methyl ether ketone (MEK), mineral spirits and other toxic, low-flash point solvents. They effectively remove greases, mineral oils, lubricants, coolants, synthetics, and particulate matter. AXAREL 1000-4000 Precision Cleaners are approved by Airbus (CML) (ref. MIL-PRF-680), Boeing, Eurocopter, Honeywell Aerospace, Goodrich Wheels & Brakes, Lockheed Martin, Messier-Bugatti, and Pratt & Whitney.

Petroferm's RE-ENTRY Prepsolv, a bio-based cleaning solvent, has been approved by Boeing Commercial in accordance to Boeing’s BAC 5750 Solvent Cleaning Specification. Formulated for manual or immersion cleaning, RE-ENTRY Prepsolv is selected when a bio-based solvent with fast drying, excellent solvency, and low surface residue is required. It is also selected due to its low volatility or vapor pressure. This helps control evaporation which minimizes solvent consumption and reduces volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. It is an alternative to acetone, isopropyl alcohol (IPA), methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), methyl propyl ketone (MPK), stoddard solvent and other low flash point, flammable and toxic solvents. It removes hard-to-clean soils such as adhesive residues, buffing and polishing compounds, corrosion inhibiting compounds (CICs), cosmoline, greases, hydraulic fluids, silicone, and waxes.

Petroferm Inc., Cleaning Product’s BIOACT 280, a bio-based cleaner, was demonstrated during MRO Americas 2011 in Miami Beach, FL. It was seen to effectively and quickly remove AEROWAX MT, a highly flexible maskant wax, commonly used in selective plating operations. BIOACT 280 is known throughout the aerospace industry for its high wax loading capacity, often resulting in change outs once every two years. It has also been tagged as the environmentally-responsible alternative to TCE, which is recognized as a suspected carcinogen and hazardous air pollutant. The BIOACT 280 series is approved by GE Aviation, CFM, Goodrich Landing Systems, Hawker Pacific, Honeywell Aerospace, International Aero Engines, Messier, Pratt & Whitney, and Rolls-Royce.
